So why should you use SERVPRO to remove flood damage from your Coconut Grove home?

Our company trains each specialist to the standards required by our industry, we maintain an extensive, restoration equipment inventory. We can take the initial steps to return your home to its original condition. 

Our first action to restoring a home is to remove everything that cannot be salvaged or repaired. In the case of Coconut Grove flooding, floor trim and drywall panels can quickly absorb enough water to cause them to warp or crumble and dissolve in place. 

SERVPRO teams cannot guarantee that a cleaned carpet is safe to use again, so we recommend immediate disposal, rather than expend the labor hours to attempt restoration. Quick removal also reduces the effects flood water has on the flooring underneath the carpet. 

While completing disposal actions, other team members begin disinfecting and drying the home. Specialists spray any surface affected by the flooding with an anti-bacterial chemical and allow it to dry. Next, they clean each surface to remove soil and other contaminants left by the  and allow them all to dry again. 

For space underneath the floors and behind the drywall, our teams use several devices to dry them for replacement quickly. Specialists use air movers to blow warm, dry air across damp surfaces to force out moisture trapped inside the wood. As the moisture evaporates, they install exhaust fans to draw out the damp air and direct it outside through the nearest window or door. If the inside humidity is very high, specialists may install one or more dehumidifiers to remove water directly from the air.  

Flooding is not something that area residents are unfamiliar with, and now you can see that finding the right team to help you overcome these effects is as simple as making a phone call.
